EDITOR'S NOTE:
I don't hate editing these articles quite as much as Wretch! Video Games!!, but this page used to have a stupid name. Yes, even stupider than this one.

Welcome to the more concise, less wordy part of the site, Gamesoft Love.

The games below aren't subjected to the horrifically rigorous and in-depth analysis process that's become the trademark of the site (assuming this site has any kind of trademark other than being woefully designed and aggressive in every way). See, I've learned that not all games are created equal, and so not all are suited for what I call The Full English style of reviewing. Can you imagine a stage-by-stage review of a fighting game (King of the Monsters 2 - The Next Thing doesn't count) for instance, or something like Moon Patrol (a game that loops forever) or Zombie Virus (where the levels are pretty much the same over and over)? It just wouldn't do. At the same time, these games are important/interesting enough to warrant inclusion on this site. What am I to do?

So, we have a compromise in the form of Gamesoft Love- these articles are one page long (with exceptions from time to time, like the Fighting Vipers article/guide hybrid) and, since I get to critique these games from the off, they're more concise and less amusing than the Wretch! Video Games!! articles. Both formats have their strengths and weaknesses (big articles are entertaining and allow me freedom to tear into games as much as I want, but are time-consuming and too big for some; small articles are concise, easier to write and their effectiveness isn't diminished too much, but I can't go into as much detail as I'd like and most of the comedy is reserved for captions) which means that, one way or the other, I can write about whatever the hell I want and nobody only Ed can stop me!

Anyway, here they are; smaller, more intense articles for you to enjoy.
